Anyone who follows @NewSpursStadium will have seen last night a tweet containing an excerpt from the planning application THFC have submitted to Haringey council with regards to the development of 44 White Hart Lane as a temporary construction compound.
A document sexily entitled ‘Construction Compound Noise Impact Assessment’ includes a timetable for the Approximate Programme of Construction Works and includes the line –
‘Demolition (existing Stadium) over the period Jan 17 – Jun 17‘.
Most of us I think expected one more season after this in our current home before having to find routes to Milton Keynes, Wembley or wherever we end up laying our hat. Most of us also anticipated only one season away from N17. If all the planning permissions get granted though, it looks like we maybe playing in an away home from home sooner and for longer than we thought.
